Sea Dragons, White Walkers and the Age of Heroes – How Game of Thrones Prequel is Set for Success

In the epic fantasy novels, A Song of Ice and Fire, the power struggle for the Iron Throne among the great Houses of Westeros, reveal a convoluted plot with fantastic elements. Martin’s storytelling ability offers a complex and ambiguous world that remains throughout the centuries – important points in the history of Westeros and Essos are highlighted in the narrative, shaping the actions and reactions of many characters. The Age of Heroes and the Targaryen Dynasty periods are exceptionally lore-rich, indulging readers into a world of magic, dragon riders, and extraordinary cliffhangers.

According to the official synopsis, HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel series will take place “thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. “ If done right, this spin-off has the potential to outshine Game of Thrones’ popularity. The new series will be shrouded in mystery but with many stories to tell.

If you didn’t read the books, you might be wondering what exactly the Age of Heroes is and what stories can unfold. Although the information on this particular period is limited, book references can give us an idea on what to expect in the upcoming series.

Are you ready for spoilers?

Why Dark Phoenix is Destined To Be a Forgettable Flop

Having watched the X-men film franchise come to life on the screen back in 2000, to seeing it re-energized in 2011 with the release of X-men: First Class, I had mixed emotions with the release of the new Dark Phoenix trailer this past week. This film franchise has seen it’s share of really good (Logan), to really bad (X-men: The Last Stand). My prediction is this will be flop of epic proportions that may even give the brass of MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) pause as to where to go next with the X-men. I have valid reasons that will help me prove my point of why this movie will be a failure.

The Walking Dead – The Roads, the Studio and the Spoilers

The Season 9 midseason finale of The Walking Dead was an excellent episode and perhaps one of the best finales in the history of the show. Although many viewers have dropped out after the last two bad seasons, The Walking Dead is back with a gripping and frightening story-line. With Rick Grimes’ departure and a six-year time jump, season 9 offers the fans a refreshing and a new beginning for the series. The communities are now separated, new characters have been introduced, and the Whisperers are finally here. For many of the comic book fans, the Whisperers are the most terrifying group of villains in the popular post-apocalyptic series.

Since 2010, The Walking Dead has been mostly filmed in Georgia. The first season was mainly filmed in Atlanta but all the production for the following seasons was moved to Riverwood Studios, purchased by AMC on July 2017. Located just outside of Senoia, Ga., Riverwood Studios is now open to all The Walking Dead devoted fans. The Walking Dead Studio Tour will take you to the series’ most iconic sets and additional sites for an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience. Some of the scenes were shot outside of the studios. The charming Downtown Senoia was once Woodbury and Alexandria is located in a peaceful neighborhood not far from this location. Minutes away from the studios, Rick’s final walk and other memorable scenes were filmed on the countryside roads of Coweta County.

If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, this tour will be a lifetime experience for you.
